My current caseload is heavily focused on alcohol addiction, sex addiction, and partners of said addicts. If you or someone close to you is suffering with addiction and you need support in dealing with it individual therapy can be extremely beneficial in learning coping techniques, reducing anxiety, letting go of control if you're a partner, and helping with accountability if you're suffering from addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Addison

Making the decision to tackle an addiction (substances, sex, gambling, food) is one of the most difficult decisions any of us ever makes. I can help you to examine how your thinking and behavioral patterns may undermine your success in breaking free from an addictive habit and assist you in establishing new, more adaptive ways to work through your addiction. Families who are struggling with an addict are not only critical to the addict's recovery, but most often are behaving in ways that support the addiction. It is important for everyone in a family system to work together to honestly reflect on their role and begin to develop new coping mechanisms to be successful.

I teach the skills from DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and also use concepts and exercises from ACT(Acceptance Commitment Therapy). Both of these therapies mesh beautifully with the Twelve Step Programs. For instance, DBT and ACT emphasize acceptance, values, and meditation. I reinforce clients working their programs through the use of these therapies.

Addiction Counselor

Callan Olive, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Addiction is painful. It's painful for the person going through it and it's painful for the people who are trying to help. Because addiction is so intense, it effects every single aspect of your life. Not all therapists have training in addiction and many are unsure of how to treat it. It's important that you go to a therapist who has adequate training and knows how to help. I have received numerous hours of training learning how to treat addiction both in a individual and family context. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Addiction-Focused therapies like the 12-Step Program. Take the first step to breaking this cycle and set up an appointment today.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Although substance abuse issues are primarily recognized as addictions, I am aware of the many other forms of addiction, such as gambling, sex, and internet. My philosophy is that any form of addiciton is simply a way for the individual to cope with their stressors. I would encourage the use of positive coping techniques; I would not be judgmental in any way. I believe that seeking assistance is a show of strength.

Addiction to any substance or behavior can have hugh consequences. Admitting that ones life is out of control is the first step to a successful recovery from any addiction. Learning new coping skills like mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance will equip the client with life long skills that will allow them to live a more fulfilled life. Many times addicts are not running toward something they are running from something. Uncovering what that is might be another key to a solid recovery.

When working with people who suffer from addictions, I work with the client to help them understand what purpose the addiction serves. We identify how it has come to be and then learn to identify triggers and trigger responses. Clients are trained in managing their awareness and urges in order to take full control of their lives. We also work to create a plan for how to maintain mental wellness moving forward so that the addiction does not morph into another mental health issue.
